Project Info:
A 2D platformer/shooter with elements from the fighting/party game genre. The fast-paced action of Unreal Tournament and Quake III Arena, and while incorporating the playful platforming of feel of Super Smash Bros. and LittleBigPlanet.

You must equip your character to one-up the other players. You must master the 6 Lethal Arms (as well as the 4 elemental gems that modify your Lethal Arms-- for a total of 24 Lethal combinations), 8 Tactical Arms and 3 different pairs of Power Boots. The game includes various multiplayer game modes, including Deathmatch, King of the Hill, Super Gem (similar to Halo's "Oddball") and Mixed mode.
